REVIEW: Solid Cocktails, Appetizers and Pizza Make for a Pleasant, if Overpriced Meal at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill in Disney Springs
Greetings from Disney Springs! It’s been a while since we visited Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, so we thought we’d try out some items. We kicked off our meal with a pair of cocktails and an appetizer that left us feeling blue… in a good way, and tried some intriguing pizza.
Lilly Belle — $15.00
Named after the locomotive of Walt Disney’s backyard railroad, the Carolwood Pacific, the Lilly Belle is made with Tanqueray gin, Aperol, lemon, rhubarb and prosecco. We found the looks of this cocktail to be deceiving. It wasn’t overly sweet, and it’s really easy-drinking for a gin-based drink. It’s really well-balanced without being floral or earthy. The only flavor that sticks out is the rhubarb, and it’s quite pleasant.
Old Fashioned — $20.00
Made with a house blend of bourbon and rye and demerara sugar, this was solid, but not worth the $20 price tag. It was nice and smooth, and we had no real complaints, but for what it is, it’s overpriced.
Truffled Potato Chips — $14.00
We hope you like blue cheese, because that’s what you get here. The Point Reyes blue cheese sauce dominates the dish, which is garnished with chives. The potato chips themselves are crunchy, despite the sauce.
We liked them, but the price seems a bit high for what amounts to potato chips with sauce.
Prosciutto Pizza — $19.00
This ten-inch pie (more than enough for one person, easily shareable) features prosciutto, mozzarella, baby arugula, and parmesan reggiano cheese, and frankly, is a much better value than the cocktails or chips.
This pizza was absolutely loaded with tons of meat, so if you’re a fan of prosciutto, this is one worth checking out. The dough was nice and flavorful, with a good chewy consistency.
The sauce could’ve been better, but the cheese was perfectly melted. It’s an enjoyable option, especially if you’re a meat-lover.
Taco Pizza — $17.00
With chili-spiced beef, cheddar cheese, pico de gallo and sour cream, this tastes like if you dropped something from Taco Bell on it. We called it the Crunchwrap Supreme Pizza, and it tastes just like it.
The toppings were centralized, making for evenly-distributed slices, but it does leave the edges with just sauce and cheese, which were similar to the prosciutto option. We preferred the other, as the flavors lend themselves better to pizza, but if you’re a fan of Taco Bell, this might just be worth it.
Would you try any of these items, or would you stay away? Share your thoughts in the comments!
